  1. Slice each sausage link into 5 pieces. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, and cook until browned, turning as needed.
  2. Drain excess grease, then add the green, red and yellow peppers, tomatoes, and Italian seasoning. Drizzle the remaining olive oil over all, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover, and let simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove the lid, and stir. Add the garlic and onion to the pan. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover, and simmer for 15 more minutes. Stir, then top with mozzarella cheese. Cover and cook for 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Remove from the heat and enjoy.

Note, There is no mention of adding pasta to this recipe. We who cook all the time know how much and when to do so, but young new cooks need to know this stuff.

My family is really reluctant to try new things.....But I did this and they loved it! I added one more can of tomatoes and served it over rice. It was a BIG hit!

Used hot Italian sausage and only used green and red peppers. We enjoyed this over penne pasta.
